MP welcomes cash for potholes in Burton and Uttoxeter

MP welcomes cash for potholes in Burton and Uttoxeter

Andrew Griffiths MP has welcomed the announcement of £4.5 million of new funding in Staffordshire to tackle potholes.

In total £6.7 million of additional funding for Staffordshire has been announced for this year, on top of the annual roads maintenance budget.

Over three million potholes will be filled in across England with funding from the £168 million Pothole Fund, announced in the 2014 Budget. This is part of more than £24 billion which will be spent on England’s roads between 2010 and 2021- the biggest investment in our roads since the 1970’s.

Andrew commented: “This is great news for everybody who uses the roads in Burton and Uttoxeter. £4.5 million of new funding will go a long way to dealing with the menace of potholes and ridding them from our roads.

Investing in Britain’s roads and infrastructure is a key part of the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan to secure a better future for Britain- and this is just one part of that. By fixing Britain’s roads the Conservatives are supporting local businesses, and making life that bit easier for the hardworking people in Burton and Uttoxeter who rely on them to get around.
